First question, can I change her into a standard?
Really depends on how handy you are. For example, I have done all kinds of work on my last car and my STI as well, including a turbo kit on my last car (installed it all myself, then removed it before selling), custom sound system in both old car and STI, as well as retrofit headlights for my old car, my STI, and my motorcycle. And then some lol. However, transmission work is often a bigger job which requires some special tools and can sometimes be a pain, I leave that to the pros mostly. But, if you are able to afford downtime with the subie, and find an STI transmission that is a confirmed fit, I'm sure you could figure it out if you took your time and did it step-by-step. A lift would be reallly handy for that job though.Thanks! I'm glad to be apart of the community. I figured it was possible I was just hoping to run into someone who had actually done it before. I would love to be able to do it without breaking my bank account, and do it on my own. I know a garage and I usually do all my own work anyway, but I assume I'd need a professional to do it?
LolAh thank you for the info, ill check out that WRX 5 speed trans. I didn't mean to offend anyone by saying 'asses' lets just call it an ex boyfriend.
